Gallup: Majority Doesn't Want Obama Re-elected

Friday, 18 Jun 2010 05:12 PM

A majority of Americans do not think President Barack Obama should win re-election, according to a new Gallup poll. Gallup says that 51 percent of the registered voters surveyed say "no," 46 percent say "yes" and 3 percent don't know.

While those numbers haven't changed much in recent months, there’s plenty to worry the administration.

Fifty-three percent of self-described independents say Obama should not win another term in 2012, compared to 43 percent who say he should. That's almost a complete reversal of where independents stood on Obama's election in 2008, when swing vote moderates were the pivotal voting bloc that helped send Obama to the White House, Yahoo! News noted.

The defection of independents is part of a larger trend in which moderates have been expressing their dissatisfaction with the Democrats for months, with polls showing the group leaning strongly toward the GOP ahead of this November's midterm elections.
